My wife and we're made to feel so welcome. The visit was perfect after a very long hard day. The pub is a real find, with a wonderful proper English old pub feel. The landlady and landlord are very friendly and keep a very clean premise. The meal was absolutely perfect and well priced. I'll be seeing you again and... More

My wife and I visited Hay-on-Wye and booked into The Pandy Inn a few miles away. We loved it. It's only got four rooms, all spacious with views of the rolling countryside, chickens and ducks wandering and a welcoming hostess. And she cooked us a lovely breakfast. Oh and did I mention the nearby pub with good food? All in... More

Great affordable priced, very tasty food. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. We went for dinner, chilli very good and throughly recommended, along with the salted caramel ice cream. Menu changes regularly so there's not one online, but it keeps interesting and means everything is fresh. Really great pub 👍

Cozz, Owner at The Pandy Inn, responded to this review

Dear Luke P, Many thanks for your kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your visit to the pub and was brave enough to take on James's chilli! I love it but it can be quite fiery for some. Hopefully you'll be popping in again when you're next in the area. With kind regards, Lisa and the team More

Bill and Magdalena were always going to be a difficuly act to follow, so it is not surprising that the kitchen changes and the food is different. What is breathtaking in its shameless vandalism is taking a thatched pub in as delightful village as Dorstone and putting in uPVC windows! Couldn't believe my eyes, does Herefordshire have a conservation officer?... More

Dear 34064, I suppose I should thank you for taking the time review our little pub as you seem to enjoy reviewing everywhere you go to and this must take up a huge amount of your time. I'm afraid I must ask if your review is a wind up? I ask this because you are way off the mark. I'm... More

SWMBO, myself and two friends have been out and about around herefordshire for 10 years, searching out excellent places to eat. Quality food and service are the primary measures, but friendly staff run a close second. The Pandy Inn doesn't offer a standard '3 meat' Sunday Lunch. If you want that or a carvery, this isnt the place for you.... More

Visiting family, so a break from the kitchen and down to the Pandy. Decent meals, well served accompanied by really good beer ... Lasagne, steak, scampi, swordfish steak, chicken and ham pies - good food done. Nice range of delicious puddings as well.

Dear Ena, Many thanks for taking the time to review the Pandy. We're sorry you were disappointed with our offering. We do indeed have only one roast on offer and this is because we pride ourselves on providing a freshly cooked roast. As already stated, we are not a restaurant and do not pretend to be one.
